I beg to differ.. sprint sold 5g phones starting with the S20 and newer are fully compatible with tmb network and use tmb sim etc..

I had a sprint s10 5G when they shut sprints 5g network down lol.. i complained and got some good deals on s20 5g devices which r compatible with tmb network if they upgrade their sim card to a tmb sim which tmb will do for free.

But agreed, having two separate systems is lame.. especially when you go to a tmb store and the reps scared to help you cuz they are new to sprints billing system lol then its down half the time.. then top it off im on a sprint employee plan which confuses them even more lmao. I reported two stores juat yesterday.. one said to come back in a month when hes more comfortable with sprint systems then another said his sprint systems were down.

Sprint used to ha e a terrible unlock process. As a QE for sprints acct services for over 4 years i had to audit reps calls and of course acct servuces being retention device unlock requests was a top call driver since ppl usually unlock their devices to move to another carrier so acct services would handle those.. of course theyd have to find out why and try to "save" them but in the end to unlock i believe timeframe was at least 50 days, acct in good standing (i.e. not past due) and device fully paid off.. they would the create a ticket which would then go to a back office team who would manually go in and unlock the device on the backend.. itd take days sometines weeks if they were backed up.

Right before the merger tho they changed the process.. cas reps had access to their unlock tool where they put the imei in and it checks if device is eligible or not and if so it unlocks it then and there.. if not it will tell them why it cant b unlocked.. wasnt any way to go in on the back end or bypass restrictions.. of course its possible but the back office team that did them all before became the ones who handle escalations when tool didnt do what it was supposed to do.

sprints flex leaae was a joke anyways lol.. ppl could pay on their phone indefinitely and still not own it lmao.. ppl were always mad..

to add, im surprised ur allowed to go in on the back end and unlock tmb devices outside of the requirements lol.. if i tried that on sprint i prolly woulda been fired 🤣

If I'm not mistaken, the T-Mobile Network Experience is an OTA update they pushed to devices allowing their Sprint phones to work on the T-Mobile or Sprint network, not be globally carrier unlocked. Therefore, every carrier still locks your device to their network for 45-180 days even if you buy an unlocked phone from the manufacturer. The second you plugin a SIM from any carrier, they lock your device to their network for a period of time. It's in every carriers activation T&C's. I haven't tested it yet but if someone were to migrate their phone completely to the T-Mobile billing system and wait 3 days, I could probably unlock it to allow the phone to work on any carrier network.

All in all, the best solution to Sprint customers being so restricted to such a **** system would be to force them to migrate their entire billing account into T-Mobile's once all lease/financing agreements are paid in full. However, that's not the route they chose.

But hey, I'm just here helping people out. :)

    the newer phones i.e. sprint s20 devices are compatible to work on tmb and spr networks.. however when logged into my sprint account theres a note next to the ones still using sprint sim cards to get a new tmb sim card to take advantage of the full tmb network.. i got one for my s20u and my samsubg purchased s21 ultra.. was just pointing out that newer sprint purchaeed phones can enjoy the fl tmb network if they have a newer device and get a tmb sim card.

    and yea, i heard a lot of spr customers complaining about that as well (locking their unlocked device they never purchased from sprint LOL) fact is mpst reps dont know about most policies so they would always tell them its still unlockd and sprint doesnt lock phones purchaed elsewhere which was false lol

    With the new app, is it just start conversation on the individuals profile that will send a pm? I don't want to spam OP but I also don't know if I sent it properly. I feel like a noob again with all the changes they made to the forums here.

      Hello XDA,

      I am back at it again with the free T-Mobile network unlocks. Yep, you heard that right... 100% FREE. This service will allow you to go into your Settings and perform a network unlock.

      ATTN: IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE BELOW REQUIREMENTS OR READ THIS ENTIRE THREAD, DO NOT PM ME AND WAIST OUR TIME. YOU WILL BE IGNORED!

      At this time, I cannot unlock the Galaxy A32.

      Current turnaround time:
      ~1-3 days depending on how busy I am. Yes, I have a life outside of this.

      Requirements:
      • Unlocking for T-Mobile OnePlus/Samsung/Google/LG/Moto US variants only.
      • Not eligible for MetroPCS, Sprint or other TMO subsidies.
      • Not eligible for Sprint users even though they merged.
      • Device must be on the network for AT LEAST 3 full calendar days.
      • Cannot be flashed to any international firmware.
      • Can be bought 3rd party but must be the T-Mobile variant and on the T-Mobile network.
      • If you meet the above requirements, PM the last name of the account holder and your phone number associated with said device.

      Important Information:
      • Please keep in mind I get a lot of PM's regarding this so you will get a reply when yours has been completed. Do not send multiple requests.
      • If you make any SIM card changes, you will have to wait at least 3 days for me to be able to unlock your device.
      • Your device does NOT have to be paid off.
      • There is no 100% guarantee this will work. There could be a possibility of an unlock ineligibility.
      • The device MUST be one purchased from T-Mobile or a 3rd party but the T-Mobile variant; NOT OnePlus/Samsung themselves or a different carrier.
      • I cannot unlock with just an IMEI number or prepaid phones.

      ERROR CODE = 255? See below..
      • Clear your network settings. Settings > System > Reset Options > Reset WiFi, Mobile, & Bluetooth.
      • Power cycle your device (turn it off and on).
      • Still doesn't work? PM me your phone number.
      • I may request you to simply direct message TMobileHelp on Twitter to whitelist your IMEI.

      Plenty of vouches here from my OP7 / OP8 unlocking..

      I know you posted your threads to vouch but I will gladly give you a +1 here as well you helped me out in the past. If you ever are able to expand to Pixels I have a 4A 5G that I would love to unlock the bootloader on. Beyond that thanks for this awesome service you provide!

      Drop me a PM and I'll take a look on Thursday. I won't be doing unlocks tomorrow but I'll be knocking everything out then. I don't see why I can't do it. If I can, then I'll update the thread and add the Pixel in on it too.

      Ah nuts that's a nope for my Nord N10 5G on T-Mobile Metro... oh well I hope the drawer trick works in 6 months.

      Sorry about that!

      @mobbdeep I can't PM is it over already

      PM me now, sorry. The last time I logged in here, this forum was on a different layout and older forum software so settings were moved around.

      ---

      To those who were donating to request network unlocks while I stopped the service and you still need the unlock, PM me. I will be knocking the requests out starting Thursday.

      I just wanted to post an update on the turnaround time right now. Due to the new OnePlus 9 & Samsung A series launching, the amount of requests I have gotten has doubled. I am doing my best to get them completed as quickly as possible. They should be all caught up tomorrow (4/9). Once your request is complete, you will get a response back from me.

      Thank you all for your patience and not sending me more than one unlock request.
